I am buying it new from amazon.com.uk this will be a Region 2 (PAL~Phase Alternate Line). I am upgrading my John Carpenter "The Thing" and "The Towering Inferno" they are the same as USA but my player extends the pic vertically having stretched to anaomorphic size altough not a true anamorphic. The process is called x,y, scaling it only works on PAL or SECAM, 'not' on NTSC. Higher but black bars are seen for a inserted wide screen in the 16 X 9 envelope of a HDTV.
